DmC: Devil May Cry

DmC: Devil May Cry Falls Short of Capcom Expectations

Capcom has reduced its target for DmC: Devil May Cry, following the disappointing performance of Ninja Theory’s reboot.

The publisher had hoped to ship two million copies of the game by the end of its financial year. With one million copies shipped as of January 2013, that figure is now expected to hit 1.2, 800,000 short of the initial target. PC sales, however, are not included.

DmC has led a somewhat troubled life, with fans responding negatively to Ninja Theory’s creative direction and the title performing poorly despite critical acclaim.

Launch week sales numbers for DmC compare poorly to those of its predecessor, Devil May Cry 4, coming in at less than one half in Japan and around a third in the UK. The poor numbers cast doubt over the future of the series.
